ELC92-4

TO:    Jerry Wray, Director
          Ohio Department of Transportation

You have requested an opinion on the following question:

Would the Ohio Department of Transportation be violating Ohio Revised Code, Section 3517.13 if a contract is awarded to an MBE prime contractor whose sub-contractor was previously rejected for the same contract because a principal of the sub-contractor contributed in excess of $1, 000 per individual to the Governor' s campaign committee during the previous two calendar years?

SYLLABUS : There is no violation of Ohio Revised Code, Section 3517.13 if a contract is awarded to a Minority Business Enterprise (EGE) prime contractor whose subcontractor was previously rejected for the same contract because a principal of the sub-contractor contributed in excess of $1, 000 per individual to the Governor' s campaign committee during the previous two calendar years, as long as the contract does not give the Governor control over the sub-contractor.
